Five Films to Check Out on Horror Channel This Week – 111021

Here are five great reasons to tune into Horror Channel this week….

Tuesday October 12th, 11am - Robot Overlords (2014)

Fabulous British indie sci-fi starring Gillian Anderson, Callan McAuliffe, and Ben Kingsley. The effects are stunning and it’s a great action-packed film that all the family can enjoy. (Also screening Saturday at 3pm.)

Wednesday October 13th, 9pm - The ‘Burbs (1989)

Joe Dante’s superb black comedy involves a normal American suburb that becomes a hotbed of suspicion and conspiracy when a strange family move in down the street. The all-star cast includes Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Corey Feldman, and Carrie Fisher.

Thursday October 14th, 10.45pm - Child’s Play 3 (1991)

Chucky is back in this controversial entry into the ever-popular franchise. Don Mancini provides the script but hands the director’s chair over to Jack Bender. Wanna play?

Friday October 15th, 1pm - 13 Ghosts (1960)

The master of ballyhoo William Castle directs this classic, fun chiller. Not to be confused with the gory re-imagining, Castle’s film is suitable for most ages. Originally released with a ‘ghost viewer’, which allowed audiences to choose whether to see the spirits or not. Watch out for Margaret Hamilton - the Wicked Witch of the West herself - as the housekeeper.

Sunday October 17th, 6.30pm - Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969)

Gerry and Sylvia Anderson made the break from Supermarionation to live-action with this brilliant feature. Starring Roy Thinnes (The Invaders), Ian Hendry, and Patrick Wymark, it was originally entitled Doppelgänger and features a space mission that returns to a parallel version of Earth.

Tune into Horror Channel on Sky 317, Virgin 149, Freeview 68, Freesat 138.
